SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL THOUGHTS
This dates for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival are January 19 to January 29, 2017. I was tied to an academic calendar for most of my career and unable to attend this film festival as the new semester usually commenced by mid-January. Since retirement, however, all has changed and it has been a favorite journey to make. Accommodations can be very expensive in Park City but prices are reasonable in Salt Cake City, especially for the weekend venues. If you ski, there are ski areas in and around Park City with few ski lines during the film festival. The bus transportation network in Park City gets you back and forth to the film venues efficiently. My favorite films for the past several years have been the documentaries, both foreign and domestic. The mountain scenery is breathtaking and it is worth the drive to leave Park City and go to the original Sundance Resort.
